      9.30am - 4.30pm: Compassionate Samadhi Water Repentance 慈悲三昧水忏

      The Compassionate Samadhi Water Repentance Sutra illustrates that karma cannot be eradicated and will bring results when the conditions are right.  More importantly, it provides an avenue for us to repent on our past negative actions.

       

      Venerable Wuda was a highly respected monk in the imperial court of the Tang dynasty. In one of his previous lives during the Western Han dynasty, he was a general by the name of Yuanang whose vilification caused General Caocuo to be killed.  The karma that General Yuanang created by instructing others to kill did not bring retribution until the late Tang dynasty.  When Venerable Wuda coveted the high status of the Aguru Seat because of his greed and arrogance, only then did the evil karma manifest, in the form of an ulcer on his knee with a humanlike face.  The ulcer only healed when Venerable Wuda was told of the karmic cause of the ulcer and he sincerely repented on his actions.

       

      Out of compassion, Venerable Wuda compiled the Compassionate Samadhi Water Repentance Sutra so that we too can have the opportunity to repent on our past unwholesome actions.  It is wished that the Compassionate Samadhi Water Repentance would cleanse the offenses of living beings so that they could obtain refreshing Dharma joy. The merits and virtues from the ceremony will be dedicated to both living and deceased beings in the Dharma Realm.

       

       

      《慈悲三昧水忏》一共三卷,内容主要是在阐明果报遇缘肯定现前的真理。忏文中把一般人常犯的粗细罪行描述得淋漓尽致,读了之后,令人不由得生起深切的忏悔心。     

      这本忏文是中国唐朝高僧悟达国师编写的。悟达国师原本是一位普通的出家人,但由于德行高深,备受皇帝宠幸。当他的声望如日中天之时,右膝却出现了一个能言能食的人面疮,日夜缠绕,苦不堪言。后来得到圣人的帮助,用经过加持的三昧法水清洗伤口,才得以痊愈。原来人面疮是悟达国师多生以前的冤家,名叫兆错,他当年被袁盎(悟达国师的前世)误杀后,虽死不甘,一直找机会报仇。由于悟达国师多世来都是持戒严谨的高僧,果报无缘可受。

      到了唐朝,由于悟达国师位居高职,升起骄慢心,无形中损害清净的德行,于是果报遇缘,化成人面疮复仇。悟达国师受圣人救护,洗除多生的宿怨,有感果报之威力,因此写成忏本,命名为《慈悲三昧水忏》。
